Sesriem Canyon

Unnamed Road, Namibia

Just outside the village of Sesriem, the Sesriem Canyon is a 100-foot deep, half-mile long gorge that was created eons ago by the Tsauchab River. On rare occasion, the canyon fills with water, and can be a lovely place to swim, but more often it is dry and empty, and can be climbed down. Views from the top down are not nearly as impressive as those up from the canyon floor, so it is worth the hike, but should be done with a guide.
